This is a funny dose of school fun from [name withheld].  He received the following email:

   Hi my name is <SNIP> and I am in our Social Psychology class sec
   0021 and I had a question about the essay assignment for Whats Eating
   Gibert Grape….I didnt know what the question meant about his identity
   heiarchy..could u explain that in lame terms??

His comments:

[“Lame terms?”  Perhaps I should use Sociology terms,
of which “identity hierarchy” is one.  One, in fact, that was
discussed at some length in the chapter covered on the recent exam.
Then again, this person only scored a 71 on the exam–*including*
the 15-point curve–so I guess I shouldn’t expect too, too much.]
